Vranjača Cave, Dugopolje Sights

Daniela Rogulj

The Vranjača Cave is located in the heart of Inland Dalmatia, in Kotlenica, half an hour drive from Split and only a 10 minute drive from Dugopolje. The cave is located at the foot of the central part of the Mosor mountain, on its northern side, and consists of two parts. The entrance section, without cave decorations, has been known to the locals since ancient times, while the other part was discovered by the owner of the land on which the cave was located (Mr Stipe Punda, in 1903). The cave was opened for tourists in 1929. From the first entrance hall, there is a small natural corridor in the second hall, consisting of 9 smaller parts of full-scale cave decorations of various shapes and colors. The specificity of this cave is that the internal temperature is constant throughout the year and is about 15C. Full of stalactites and stalagmites, cave pillars and arcades, Vranjača is one of the most beautiful pearls of karstic nature, and in 1963 it was declared a protected geomorphological monument of nature. Not far from the entrance to the Vranjica Cave is the starting point of mountain trails leading up to the top of Vikov stop (1325 m).
